Dark Souls 2 Announced

by

Well this almost makes sitting through the Spike’s video game award show worthwhile. Emphasis on the almost. According to an official press release, Dark Souls 2 is being developed for PS3, Xbox 360 and the PC so nobody need make any petitions at this time. Details are scarce, but there are a few miniscule tidbits in both the announcement trailer and the press release.

[quote]“Dark Souls II retains the core essence of Dark Souls while evolving to present new twists and challenges that are sure to please longtime fans and attract new comers to the series,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “FromSoftware is going to take a very dark path with Dark Souls II; players will need to look deep within themselves to see if they have the intestinal fortitude to embark on this journey.”[/quote] 

Sounds good to me. Check out the trailer below.
